Yoga studio opens

Practice Yoga Studio has opened at 2227 Cole Street in Birmingham’s Rail District focused around Tommy Mack Yoga, according to Lexa Leatherdale, one of the studio’s co-founders, along with Mack and his wife Tiffany. Mack, who taught at Center for Yoga for eight years and Red Lotus in Rochester, “has a strong connection in his own practice and a great following and is excited to open his own studio,” Leatherdale said. The goal with Practice Yoga is to create a welcoming community for beginners to those with an experienced practice. “They really care that yoga is something that allows you to have a strong mind, strong body, while it allows you to have a great workout and connect with your true self on your mat,” Leatherdale said. At Practice Yoga, there are no bright lights, mirrors or external distractions. The studio has infrared heat to protect muscles. “Candlelight floods the space to allow you to get into your own journey on your own mat for 60 minutes,” she said. Three types of classes – practice flow, power flow and hot flow – are offered seven days a week, with the first class attended free.
